 Free loft insulation*

Is the money you are spending on heating your home, escaping through your roof?

As much as a third of the heat in your home is lost through your loft and roof but you could save up to 20% of the heated air in your home by installing efficient loft insulation for free.

These days, building regulations require loft insulation to be around 10-12 inches thick.  If your home was built before 1982 and has not subsequently received an insulation top up, then you should consider arranging a free insulation survey from Happy Energy.

*Grant Funding may be available for the works and the amount of grant and the cost of the works will vary depending on how much CO2 is saved by installing the upgrade.

*Typically loft insulation is free if your home has 4 inches (100mm) or less of existing insulation.  In order to confirm if the work is free we will carry out a free loft survey.  Grants are available for all homes with an eligible resident but, call us now for more information on 0800 0 246 234

Am I eligible for a grant?

There are 3 main ways that you could be eligible for one of our grants:

  • If you receive qualifying benefits
  • If you are on a low income and have high heating costs*
  • If you have a low income and someone in your home has a long term illness*

*The last 2 options are only available in certain local authority areas, if you are not on benefit but you are on a low income, please get in touch and we will confirm if your local authority area is covered by this scheme

Sorry but the grants are not available for social housing.

Which benefits apply?

You should be eligible if you, or anyone living in your home receives one of these benefits:

  • Pension Guarantee Credit
  • Child or Working Tax Credit
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income Support
  • Universal Credit
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment

For Child Benefit, you must also earn below a certain threshold based on the number of people in your family as per the table below.  You will be required to sign a self declaration to confirm that your income is below one of these thresholds based on your family circumstances.  A child is typically 16 or under and living with you, or under 20 if in approved education, and the income is your combined household income before tax and including all benefits.  For more information on this, and to see the declaration you would have to sign, please click here.

I am not on benefit but I am on a low income or suffer from an illness, am I eligible?

In some local authority areas it is possible for you to be eligible for the grant if you are on a low income and have high heating costs, for example you live in a large home with solid walls, or if you are on a low income and someone in your home suffers from a long term illness which can in some cases include mental health issues.  Currently most of the southwest is covered by this scheme, but local authorities around Britain are also signing up.  If you believe you may fit these criteria please get in touch, we will need to ask you a series of questions and find out which local authority your home comes under.  We will then confirm if we are able to assist you with a heating grant.
